Welcome to our project wiki. We aim to bring Linux and Google's Android operating systems to the T-Mobile Wing, HTC Herald / Atlas platforms and many other OMAP850-based devices.
Currently, the Angstrom 2007.12 Linux distribution featuring the 2.6.25 kernel and debugging / development utilities operate on many devices, including the T-Mobile Wing / HTC Herald, along with a functional Android 1.5 installation. The system boots using the HaRet boot system, so no flashing is involved. The kernel is based on the work done by the linwizard project.

NEW Check out our new blog! Thanks to UNFORGiVEN512 for setting it up!
The latest release is 0.3. Installation of Wing Linux is a snap -- Simply install the CAB file into Windows Mobile and you're good to go! Get it here.
If you have an OMAP850-based device and would like to help, we're looking for developers familiar with Linux programming and especially kernel development who are willing to help maintain, test, and develop for each of the different devices we support (see here). Shoot us an email or drop by #wing-linux on freenode.org if you're interested!

Also remember, when you install it, remove your rootfs.img and rootfs.img.swp, otherwise the upgrade won't take effect. This will remove any customization you've done to your installation.

Wing Linux version 0.3pre2 went out today for testing. This version includes changes to the kernel that hopefully fix the white screen issue that's plagued some of our users from the beginning. Additionally, all buttons on the Wing now fire events, and many of them are mapped into Android. The keyboard symbols and numbers are now mapped exactly as they are on the phone and in WM6 (in console mode only).
This release, like the previous one, also includes Android 1.5 (Cupcake).
You can grab a copy in the Development? section on this site.
Join us in #wing-linux if you have problems with this release.
